I Say…

– The first movie with the snow princess is better than this one. I’m so sorry! I have seen the movie a long time ago but I can’t find peace until I write down this review!
– Sasuke is not here, there were little Sakura moments, & Shikamaru’s brilliance wasn’t given much attention.
-Kankurou was cool though, even Gaara at the beginning. They’re really a great team.
-Of course, Naruto is still the same, shedding light for those who are in the darkness. This time it’s Temujin who found hope and friendship in the form of Naruto.
-I don’t like the ending song too.
-It’s simply below my expectation of a blockbuster sequel! I hope the third Naruto movie will beat this!
